Do I have to wear a face mask when using public transport in Newcastle or Gateshead?

Government guidelines state that it is a legal requirement to wear a face mask or sufficient covering like a scarf, if you are using public transport in England. A face covering is a covering of any type which covers your nose and mouth. Wearing a face mask or covering will be a condition of travel.
